Since everyone else apparently gets a journal, maybe I should claim some space too... 

I'm just another schmo that has a lot to say about things that most nobody cares about.

Not as flexible as the significant others in some other journals.

IDK, how flexible are you?

lol I like your comment to me a few weeks ago...

"Why does she put up with you?"  lol 

She has not had to so far this week due to her daughter coming back home, work, and my going to Buffett yesterday, (met up with her brother and his wife in the parking lot.) and tonight she isn't she is going to the Mets game again with her siblings and their dad.  This means I gotta put my A-Game on if I cook tomorrow.

Before I go do some things around town... 

Here is the current state of the china cabinet which is basically the only area I display anything in the house.  (there may be a lego set or four in the office.   

Buzz... don't you display any comics?  Nope... just the low grade one in the cabinet... 

Anywhooooo

There is a little story behind everything and anything that is in that cabinet or an explanation as to why that is on display.  The things in there range from the 1930's to current.

So... if interested in asking... ask away what something is and if there is a cool little story behind it... if not... simply take a look...

I noticed the same shelf, but was drawn in by the birdhouse next to the picture frame.  There's a lot of interesting items in that display.

No Micronauts... I appreciate them but never had them or got into them... seemed silly for me to get into it later just to 'have it' if that makes any sense. 

The small picture of the house is of a house that no longer exists.  My great grandfather who would in today's terms be described as an illegal immigrant, bought the house during the Great Depression.  Great Grandpa Lorenzo (Papa) born in 1897 came here to work and then kinda never left.  He only became an American Citizen shortly before America became involved in WWII in 1939.   The house, located in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn,  was huge and had multiple entrances with one elevated on the side of the house for deliveries by horse and carriage.  It had three levels and a basement and a porch that partially wrapped around three sides of the house if I remember.   There was a double or three car detached garage in the back and I remember there was a mini vinyard where they grew grapes along with another garden for tomatoes. This was the house that my grandfather grew up in and eventually my grandmother moved into the second floor when she married my grandfather after WWII.  My Aunt and Uncle took the third floor when the tenants left.

I remember a few Christmases there until the house was sold in 1983 following the death of my Grandfather and my Great Uncle who eventually returned to live there.  My Great Grandfather had died in 1980. My grandmother moved out to Long Island after selling the house and bought a house out here. 

In what is a great shame, this house was torn down at some point in the last fifteen years and condos now take the place of it.  Not even the address for this house exists anymore. 

I have a LOT of stories about that house... some that my mother's cousins are unaware of that I can tell in person but cannot write online until certain people are no longer alive lol ...

knew it had a special something. you can just tell from the photograph. I'm sure the condos are bland-less stories that could be anywhere USA.

Thanks for taking the time to tell us this story, Buzz.

The bird house was built by my grandfather and I sometimes around 1981-1982 I guess... 

My grandfather wanted to teach me basic woodworking so we built a birdhouse together.  The birdhouse was never used but it always stayed on my shelf no matter where I was.  Eventually the birdhouse made it's way back into my china cabinet, which was once my Grandmother's. I keep a small cabinet that he built located as you walk into the house. 

After he returned from WWII, my grandfather, who worked for the signal corps and infantry, returned to his job with the phone company and took on woodworking as a hobby.

Oh no problem... lol 

I have no problem answering most anything asked in this journal (within reason... in order to protect the certain privacies of myself and others.)

The condos are definitely bland... I just punched the address up in Google Maps.

And, given where they're located, sell for over $1 million for a 1 bedroom lol

FunFact... 

The wooden train in the center of the cabinet on the second shelf pulling the blue passenger car as well as the wooden truck pulling an additional cart are both Lego.  Lego ceased production of all wooden toys in 1960.  I believe that they are all from the late 40's to early 50's.

Things I have learned in the last 24hrs 

I am NOT allergic to multiple wasp stings nor will they kill me. 

They do leave nasty heated marks though.

*makes a note* But... did you get super powers?  An unnatural desire to pollinate plants?
